In this study, for the first time, the influences of a monochromatic linearly polarized laser field on the total refractive index changes (TRICs) and the total absorption coefficients (TACs) of quantum well (QW) with the Rosen-Morse potential confinement by constituting GaAs/GaAlAs heterostructure are considered. Time-dependent in the Schrodinger equation is modified through the Kramers-Henneberger (KH) transformation and the dipole approximation, and then the laser-dressed counterpart of well potential is generated by using the Ehlotzky approximation. The bound state energy values and the wave functions of the Rosen-Morse quantum well (RMQW) under the influence of the intense laser field (ILF) are obtained by using the diagonalization method in the framework of the effective mass approach and the parabolic band approximation. The effects of structure parameters on TRICs and TACs of RMQW are also explained in detail, as well as the ILF's ones. In addition to these, the alternativeness to each other of the structure parameters and the ILF on the optical specifications is also discussed. The results of the present work are necessary and crucial in optimization of the optical specifications of RMQW to be fabricated for devices applications.
